Individual Mentoring for Editors

If you’re struggling with an editing-related problem, I may be able to help. Just drop me a line at jennifer@jenniferlawler.com stating your main concern. If you don’t know what your main concern is, that’s fine, too! Just reach out.

I’ll respond with some potential ways we can address your needs along with time and cost estimates. Mentoring can be done by phone or email.

I can offer personal feedback on all aspects of developmental editing, including as manuscript assessment, building your business, effective client communication, and more. I also review manuscript edits and revision letters and give feedback.

“I had several a-ha moments while reading Jennifer’s thorough, clear-eyed editing critique. I came away with concrete, actionable advice that I have already started using with my current project. Jennifer’s critique will make me a better – and more confident – developmental editor.” – Kristen Tate
